Designing and Engineering Fall Protection Systems

Fall Protection and Fall Arrest System Design and Engineering

To be effective, fall protection systems must be easy to use. “User friendly” designs allow workers to do their jobs with minimum interference. Our design process begins with an engineering site visit where we assess your facility and consult with your staff to develop the best fall protection solution.

Engineering Fall Protection and Fall Arrest Systems

Our staff of in-house structural engineers design each fall protection system to specification based on your facility. Our specifications include calculating pertinent factors such as dynamic load requirements, peak loading, soil bearing pressure and structural attachment points. The combination of these factors results in a properly designed and engineered fall arrest system.

Diversified Fall Protection’s experienced engineers have designed a wide range of fall protection and fall arrest systems in hundreds of settings. Our system designs have run the range from 150 foot vertical ladder safety systems, to structural steel uprights connecting horizontal lifelines crossing over rail cars and tank trucks, to 1,650 foot span crane rail safety systems. We will always work with you to provide optimal, safe solutions for your work force.

Since 1994, Diversified Fall Protection has provided customers with a complete, turnkey source for fall protection services. Today, you can rely on us to protect your workers with application-specific products and services that include fall arrest and fall restraint systems and personal protective equipment selection and training.
